Description

Haere Mai.

Come and see us at Napier's first regular Repair Cafe on the first Cafe session of 2023!

Bring along your small broken household items to be repaired by our team of dedicated Repair Volunteers!

Our talented team will be on hand to repair your clothing and soft furnishings, children's books, small appliances and electronics, jewellery, bicycles and scooters, toys, and other small household items.

Learn some repair skills, enjoy a cup of tea or a cup of freshly brewed coffee supplied by our generous local sponsors Switch Coffee Roasters with a slice of cake or a cookie.

Bring your tamariki to hang out in our special kid's zone and let them explore how things work at our Take Apart Table.

Hang out, have a chat and take some free books from our Sustainable Library.

Free entry! Koha for refreshments and baking and for any successful repair.

Some things to note:

-Please bring a maximum of 3 items for repair. We ask that you bring only 1 electronic item and a maximum of 2 items that require sewing. This is so that everyone has a chance to have their items repaired without long wait times in our most popular repair areas.

-Please bring your items in before 2pm. The cafe closes at 2.30pm so this will give our repairers enough time to repair your items before we close.

-Make sure you bring some gold coins for our koha box so you can enjoy some baking and tea / Switch Coffee Roasters coffee, we don't have EFTPOS available.

-Small items you can carry on your own only please, and if your item is unable to be repaired, please take it away with you. We cannot recycle your items for you.

 

Supported by Switch Coffee Roasters, Hawke's Bay Regional Council, Keep Napier Beautiful, Repair Cafe Aotearoa NZ, and run by Sustainable Napier.
